You can read the script online. Some people like to spoil it for themselves.

There is a script out there that has been confirmed to be real, but it is not the final revision.

It was a close one between First Contact and TWOK, but I chose First Contact

Well, in that case, seeing the ending of 2 and the beginning of 4 must be confusing for you Grin

Actually, I've only seen the one with the Cetacean Probe, First Contact, Insurrection (briefly, while on a place) and Generations...

So you've seen 4, 7, 8, and 9.

I recomend that you see the rest. You're really missing out.

No douth in my mind, Star Trek VI (6)! That movie was so cool! The rest were good too but that is my favourite.

Six definately had a different feel from the rest. I can't explain how though. Well, it was "darker" than the rest.

I've also seen the one with the Klingon General with the eyepatch, and the one with the prison camp with the changeling. Dunno if they're the same...

I liked them all except for the first one. That movie was just bad. Being a serious trekker didn't change that for me.

I have a theory, every odd-number Star Trek film is substandard. For instance, the first one, Insurrection......

Actually, maybe not every film...

Many other people have had that theory. I've heard it many times before and I agree with it. Just run through the movies and think about which ones weren't really good and/or didn't really stand above the rest. You'll find that the even numbered ones are the best. I hope this holds true for Nemesis.

Nemesis? TNG is in Nemesis. In fact, I think it's the last movie that they will do. Sad

Yay, I like TNG, and Geordi's new eyes.

The new uniforms are cool, I didn't like the skintight ones, semi-skintight ones or the ancient ones. The only other uniforms I liked were the red ones with the chunky white jumper, and the newish ones in Voyager and early DS9.

Er....in a couple of Voyager's when Tuvok has flashbacks to his career on the Excelsior, and in film number 7, I thought...

Picard wore one in "Tapestry" (TNG) and there was an episode where Wesley Crusher watches a holomessage from his dad on the holodeck and he's wearing that uniform, but with the TNG comm badge.

The uniform was rubbish, the storyline was an old unused TV script, the crew were boring, the music was bad, and they spent too long without talking. There was a 5 minute piece as they went along spacedock past the enterprise for god's sake, with only rubbish music and no talking and in my opinion, terrible shots of the ship, but, that was the olden days. And what's weird is that spock left half of his ship (the nacelles) floating in space.

Yeah I thaught that was weird too about Spock's ship (which was really a transport shuttle thingy). Yeah, Pike, poor old Pike. Ended up in a wheelchair and can now be downloaded from EFFiles Grin

Pike, he was terrible, and spock's ship was simply a 1-person warp transport to get him to the enterprise. And you, just to say, youve had 95 posts in 3 days, average 31.6 posts a day (other calculates over 2 days). Calm down man, you dont need to post so much. Take your time, and slowly move up the ranks. SLOWLY.

Pike always struck me as a mistake. They were sitting in the studio, and they said, "Hey, do we want this guy who relies on his rage to do things commanding the flagship of Starfleet?", so they got James Tiberius Kirk aka William Shatner, a more mellow guy, to be Captain. Beats me why male Starfleet captains either had to be irrational or womanisers though...
